Is it time to buy the FTSE 100’s 3 worst-performing stocks of 2020?

first_imgIs it time to buy the FTSE 100’s 3 worst-performing stocks of 2020? This year’s market crash has left some companies’ shares at staggeringly low levels. The FTSE 100‘s three worst-performing stocks of 2020 are down 65%, 63%, and 59%. They could represent big opportunities.Time to be greedy?Legendary investor Warren Buffett has famously advised investors to “be greedy when others are fearful”.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Is it time for brave contrarians to be greedy, and buy into the Footsie’s biggest fallers? After all, if these stocks recover, the returns could be spectacular!Worst-performing stock #1Airlines are facing an unprecedented crisis due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Unsurprisingly, International Consolidated Airlines (LSE: IAG) is the Footsie’s biggest faller this year.The owner of British Airways, and carriers including Iberia and Aer Lingus, dashed to preserve cash by all means possible. However, it’s had to go further to reduce financial leverage and increase liquidity. A month ago, it proposed a rights issue to raise up to €2.75bn.We’ll get the details after the proposal is approved by shareholders at an AGM on 8 September. But it’s safe to say it’s going to be painfully dilutive. I’d assume at least 50%, based on the €2.75bn target and IAG’s current market capitalisation of £4.3bn.Buffett sold all his US airline stocks after the pandemic struck. He reckons “the world has changed for the airlines.” I tend to agree, and plan to avoid IAG while there’s so little clarity on the industry’s future.Worst-performing stock #2I’m more optimistic about the prospects of Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR). This despite its exposure, through its civil aerospace division, to the same uncertainties as IAG. And despite the possibility it too may have to raise cash.In last week’s half-year results, management told us it’s reviewing a range of funding options to bolster its balance sheet. As things stand, though, it looks to be hoping a combination of an improving macroeconomic backdrop, cost-cutting, and asset disposals will just about enable the group to trade its way through.It reported a resilient performance by its defence business during the first half of the year, and a recovery in its power systems division after earlier disruption in some end markets. Meanwhile, it is radically resizing civil aerospace in the expectation of a smaller post-Covid-19 market.On balance, I see RR as a decent ‘speculative buy’. I would, though, hold back some cash to participate in the event of a discount fundraising.Worst-performing stock #3ITV (LSE: ITV) shares may not have fallen quite as far as IAG’s and RR’s. But near to 60% is still a heck of a drop. Indeed, absent an unlikely big leap in the share price in tomorrow’s trading, ITV is set to be demoted from the FTSE 100 in the latest quarterly reshuffle of the index.I really don’t understand why this one is quite so unloved by the market. It remained profitable in the first half of the year, despite having to halt production at its studios during lockdown and suffering a big drop in advertising revenue to boot.We’re told production has now largely resumed, and the company is seeing some signs of improvement in advertising. Also that it has sufficient financial flexibility to cope with a second wave of the pandemic, and to continue investing in data, technology, online, and streaming.I can only see ITV as an attractive ‘long-term buy’ at the current discount level.

4 dividend shares to buy

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Image source: Getty Images. The Motley Fool UK’s Top Income Stock… I’m looking for some top UK dividend shares to add to my investment portfolio. Here are four that have caught my attention recently.#1: In rude healthI think Primary Health Properties is a great way to take the stress out of investing. Why? It invests in healthcare properties and then lets these out to doctors, dentists, pharmacies and NHS organisations.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…It therefore doesn’t have to worry about whether its rents will keep rolling in during economic downturns. I think it’s a great buy as, under real estate investment trust (or REIT) rules this UK dividend share is obliged to pay out 90% of annual profits out to its shareholders.I also think it’s a brilliant buy despite the threat that funding changes to the health service could bring. Primary Health Properties carries a 4.1% forward dividend yield.#2: Another low-drama dividend shareThe PRS REIT is another big-paying dividend share I like the look of. It also carries a prospective yield of 4.1% and, like the aforementioned share, it is obliged to pay nine-tenths of profits in the form of dividends).This particular property trust builds family homes for the private rented sector, another ultra-defensive section of the real estate market.In fact the shortage of larger homes for people with families is particularly acute in the UK, helping drive rents steadily higher and with them, profits at companies like this. I’d buy The PRS REIT for my own Stocks and Shares ISA despite the ever-present threat of a downturn in the housing market.#3: Boxing cleverTritax Big Box REIT is a share I actually already own in my ISA. I bought it because its ‘big box’ warehousing and distribution assets are in high demand as e-commerce goes from strength to strength.However, the bigger yields over at its continental cousin Tritax Eurobox suggest it’s another great UK dividend share to buy today.The forward dividend yield here sits at a tasty 4.3%. Rents are booming because of structural undersupply in this real estate market so these businesses are expanding rapidly to make the most of this huge opportunity.Though be aware that these firms’ active acquisition programmes involve a range of risks, from overpaying for an asset to picking one in the wrong location.#4: A FTSE 100 greatI also think buying GlaxoSmithKline shares could be a good idea today. Not only does this FTSE 100 stock sport a hefty 5.9% dividend yield for 2020, but the business changes hands on an undemanding forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 14 times too.Sales at the pharma giant dropped 18% in the first quarter as patients visited GPs less frequently due to Covid-19 and doctors concentrated on vaccine rollouts.But I’d still buy this dividend share despite the prospect of recurring pressure as the health crisis persists.But global healthcare investment is set to balloon over the long term. And Glaxo has the might to create an industry-leading drugs pipeline to exploit this opportunity to its fullest. We think that when a company’s CEO owns 12.1% of its stock, that’s usually a very good sign.But with this opportunity it could get even better.Still only 55 years old, he sees the chance for a new “Uber-style” technology.And this is not a tiny tech startup full of empty promises.This extraordinary company is already one of the largest in its industry.Last year, revenues hit a whopping £1.132 billion.The board recently announced a 10% dividend hike.And it has been a superb Motley Fool income pick for 9 years running!But even so, we believe there could still be huge upside ahead.Clearly, this company’s founder and CEO agrees.

Jerry Collins’ shock retirement from New Zealand rugby

first_imgMonday May 26, 2008 Jerry Collins’ shock retirement from New Zealand rugby Former All Blacks captain Jerry Collins has ended his career in New Zealand. The 27-year-old Wellington Hurricanes loose forward said he would take an indefinite break from the game before considering his future. “It’s something I’ve thought about for a while. I’ve played 10 years for one province and it’s hard to leave but it’s probably the right time,” he said. Collins, who will play for the Barbarians against England on Sunday, may consider an overseas contract. But he added: “I’m not in any rush to get out the country.” Out of respect to New Zealand Rugby and the Hurricanes, he hasn’t been involved in any contractual discussions as yet. “You can’t negotiate while you’re still contracted so at the moment the cupboard is pretty bare but I’m sure there’s someone out there who will give me a job for a couple of weeks.” Collins is the 11th player to quit the All Blacks following last year’s failed World Cup campaign in France. Chris Jack, Carl Hayman, Anton Oliver, Byron Kelleher, Aaron Mauger, Luke McAlister and Doug Howlett are all now plying their trade in Europe. Nick Evans and Reuben Thorne have signed contracts to play overseas while Keith Robinson retired through injury.Note: Thanks to the BBC, All Blacks.com, and rugger1222.

A recessed plywood panelled wall provides focus, texture and houses a fireplace, and beyond lies a custom open kitchen, an area demarcated under a lower ceiling level to encourage a warmer feel to this more intimate social space. Save this picture!Courtesy of Grech & VinciThe master bedroom is located on the ground floor, affording the client a view of the pool area and internal courtyard. A concrete boundary wall retains complete privacy and reflects the texture of concrete used for the bedroom ceiling and its corresponding ensuite bathroom. In here, mirrored cabinets meet floor level apertures running the room’s length to add light but screen it from the pool deck.Save this picture!Courtesy of Grech & VinciOn the first floor above the living area, a walkway with a perforated steel railing links two further bedrooms creating a change in textures whilst continuing the strong lines of the central volume – a motif reflected in a staircase of the same material elsewhere in the house.

BBC World Service reporter held in northwestern city

first_img May 14, 2021 Find out more to go further Receive email alerts News News Reporters Without Borders is very concerned to learn that Urinboy Usmonov, a reporter for the BBC World Service’s Uzbek-language service, is being held in a detention centre in the northwestern city of Khujand for allegedly belonging to Hizb-ut-Tahrir, a non-violent Islamist movement that is banned throughout Central Asia.“We call on the Tajik police and judicial authorities to clarify the nature of Usmonov’s detention and to produce evidence of the allegations being made against him,” Reporters Without Borders said. “So far, it is the law enforcement bodies who have behaved illegally in this case.”Usmonov’s family began looking for him when he went missing on the evening of 13 June. They were surprised to see security service officers escort him to his home the next day. The officers searched the place and announced that he was under arrest. Family members said they were signs that he had been mistreated.He has been denied the right to see his lawyer, Fayziniso Vokhidova, since his arrest. Vokhidova said a prosecutor told her that Usmonov had declined the use of her services. But such a refusal can only be made in writing, and in the presence of a lawyer. Usmonov has not been allowed to see his family either.“Usmonov has diabetes,” Reporters Without Borders was told by Khayrullo Ubaydullaev, the head of the BBC’s Uzbek-language service. “As well as a lawyer, it is vital that he has access to his medical treatment.”The interior ministry claimed that Usmonov joined Hizb-ut-Tahrir in 2009 and that he had “promoted” it in his reports and on online social networks. But in a statement, the BBC said he had covered the trials of Hizb-ut-Tahrir activists at its request and that it had no reason to believe the allegations.Alisher Sidikov, the head of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty’s Uzbek service and a former colleague of Usmonov, told Reporters Without Borders that Usmonov often covered Hizb-ut-Tahrir and other sensitive subjects, such as border problems and the very controversial Rogun dam project, the source of considerable tension between Tajikistan and neighbouring Uzbekistan.“Usmonov has nothing in common with an extremist and his stories are never biased,” Sidikov said. “But he is always very critical of the Tajik and Uzbek authorities. He is a very independent person and I cannot imagine him submitting to the discipline of a clandestine movement. He is also the president of the Uzbek section of the Union of Tajik Writers. A clandestine organization would never allow the representative of an official body to become a member. For all these reasons, he is the last person I would suspect of belonging to this organization.”Reporters Without Borders added: “There is little doubt that Usmonov was arrested because of his journalistic activities. “Using the fight against extremism in order to crack down on dissidents is standard practice in Tajikistan. In the absence of hard evidence, the authorities must free him unconditionally at once.“As far as we know, nothing was taken from his home. Nonetheless, we warn the police against trying to criminalize the mere possession of Hizb-ut-Tahrir leaflets. Such abuses are common throughout Central Asia and they were used as grounds for making outrageous charges against RFE/RL reporter Alisher Saipov, who was murdered in Kyrgyzstan in 2007. People who have received leaflets should not be confused with the activists who distribute them. Being aware of press releases and statements is an integral part of a journalist’s work.”Independent media and religious groups have suffered of late as a result of harsher repression by President Rahmon’s autocratic regime. When clashes intensified last autumn in Rasht Valley, many media were accused of “complicity with the terrorists” just for reporting the clashes. A total of 150 Hizb-ut-Tahrir activists were arrested last year. Sharifjon Yokubov, said to be its leader in the northwestern Sughd region, was arrested on 14 June.Some Reporters Without Borders contacts said Usmonov’s arrest could also be an attempt to intimidate the Uzbek community in Tajikistan, which is increasing being made to pay for a diplomatic dispute between Dushanbe and Tashkent.

This could threaten the dam’s structural integrity and cause flooding to neighborhoods downstream.Areas under threat would include the Arroyo Seco American Viticultural Area (AVA) southeast of Monterey Bay.Devil’s Gate, a 100-foot high concrete gravity arch dam, was built in 1920 in the Arroyo Seco as the first flood control dam in LA County. The dam supports a 5,323 acre-feet capacity reservoir within the Hahamongna Basin.Dam safety officials say failing to complete the debris removal project, as well as future sediment removal, could result in overtopping the dam. Structural failure could inundate a significant area.Officials say there is risk of flooding south of the dam if the San Gabriel Mountains are hit with a hard El Nino winter, sending large amounts of mud, rocks and burned trees into an already full Hahamongna basin.“The dam, since it was constructed, was built in size to provide a certain level of flood protection to downstream communities,” officials said. “The quantity of sediment that we’re recommending to remove allows us to provide historical levels of flood protection to the downstream communities.”Major sediment-removal projects are also planned for dams in Pacoima, Tujunga and three other locations in the San Gabriel Mountains.
